Fly Over Everest

Angelo d'Arrigo accomplished another historic feat at an altitude near 9,000 metres for roughly 4 hours at temperatures around -50 °C traveling at speeds of 200 kilometres per hour: he became the first man to fly over Everest, the world's highest mountain.

To reach this arduous objective it took 2 years of psycho-physical training in tight collaboration with the Fiat Research Centre, the Centro Sperimentale di Medicina Aerospaziale and Icarus 2000.

During the 45 days of the Over Everest expedition Angelo reintroduced a Himalayan eagle born in captivity back into the Everest valley to re-launch this nearly extinct species to the Himalayas , its natural environment.
